11/06/2017 3:25 PMPROJECT QUESTION: The specifications indicate that the tieback anchors must not extend farther than 80 feet beyond the wall reference lines. Based on the soil conditions at some wall locations, together with the relatively high anchor loads, it is our opinion that some anchors will require the use of 8 inch dia. drill holes to keep the anchors within the specified tieback anchor zones. Note that the anchor head connection provided in the contract documents consists of an 8 inch dia. pipe sleeve. If a larger diameter pipe sleeve is required to accommodate a larger drill hole diameter, the anchor sleeve and pile flange reinforcing would have to be re-designed.Johnston, Judith L
11/06/2017 3:23 PMPROJECT QUESTION: Given the uncertainty in soil conditions, you should probably plan on installing re-grout tubes and re-grouting (i.e., secondary pressure grouting) each anchor.Johnston, Judith L
11/06/2017 3:19 PMPROJECT QUESTION: It is our opinion that there is not enough geotechnical information to complete a final design of the permanent tieback anchors. With the exception of a few shallow hand auger borings at some of the walls, there were no SPT or CPT borings drilled in the tieback anchor zones for these retaining walls. The bond lengths that we have estimated are based on the soil borings drilled along the wall alignment, which may not be representative of the soil conditions present in the tieback zone. We strongly recommend that soil borings be drilled in the tieback anchor zone of each retaining wall to better characterize the soil conditions prior to final design.Johnston, Judith L
